GREAT show!!! Good energy, good acting, GREAT voices. Not too long, not too short. I've been to the Surf Ball Room in Clear Lake, IA many times so this story is near and dear to my heart although I was only 2 when Buddy Holly died.

_Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story _

Written by Alan Janes

Original London production directed by Rob Bettinson

Directed by Ron Peluso

Musical Direction by Gary Rue

Part biography, part rock ‘n’ roll concert, this is the musical retelling of the life and times of Buddy Holly from his meteoric rise to stardom to the unforgettable concert in Clear Lake, Iowa. Extremely talented, passionate, and impulsive, Buddy crossed racial barriers with his music and left an indelible legacy in just four short years. Musical hits include: “Peggy Sue,” “Oh Boy!” “Rave On,” and “That’ll Be the Day.”

Following the May 27 & May 28 performances, the audience is invited to enjoy free karaoke at the theatre.  Sing a song on the History Theatre stage and enjoy a little “liquid courage” with happy hour drink prices following the 7:30 p.m. performances. 

May 27 – karaoke hosted by Allen Malicsi (Ritchie Valens)

May 28 – karaoke hosted by Nicholas Freeman (Buddy Holly) and Scott Jorgenson (The Big Bopper)
